For the Holy Souls - Janet Baker sings Elgar

One of my favourite pieces - one of my favourite composers - one of my favourite singers. The "Angel's Farewell" from Elgar's "The Dream of Gerontius". The soul is laid in Purgatory by the angel who promises to return - "...and I will wake thee.." Beautiful!
